Courtyard Concerts

Explanation

Intimate performances in beautiful locations

For many, no Choral Biennale is complete without taking in our famous day of Courtyard Concerts! This is actually a mini-Festival of its own, started some years ago to encourage amateur choirs from town, region and nation to participate in a huge open-air celebration of singing in Haarlem’s many historical courtyards.

Today more than fifty a cappella ensembles and amateur performers will showcase their singing skills. Walk from venue to venue and be inspired by the beauty of the city and the huge diversity of musical genres being performed. Romantic songs and arrangements, old madrigals and jazz, sea shanties and pop standards, you’ll hear it all! Each concert lasts about 30 minutes,  and is free of charge.

The Courtyard Concerts finish around 5pm with a spectacular grand finale. Afterwards, the Rotterdam Vocal Group MAZE, named “Choir of the Year 2018”, rounds the whole day off with a medley of their own repertoire and danceable covers. Location wil be at Damstraat near by Nauwe Appelaarsteeg.
